The Toys for Tots golf event at Tampa Bay last Saturday was a huge success. We had over 100 golfer and raised enough money to buy another 100 bikes. There will be over 200 new bikes under the Christmas trees of our local children this year, due to our community support. I’m told most of these children have never had a Christmas tree!
When I participated in the Pasco County Leadership program in 2015 Pasco had over 2300 homeless children. The discreet way’s we try to accommodate them so these children are not bullied or shamed by their peers is so creative. Homeless estimates have fallen 43% since 2011. Unsheltered homeless estimates fell 10% from 17,017 to 15,361, while sheltered estimates fell 4% from18,883 to 18,105. Estimates of veteran homelessness fell 35% from3,926 in 2015 to 2,902 in 2016. It’s a continuous struggle, but with your help we are whittling away at these numbers.
The Perfect 10 Charity has matching funds to purchase helmets to go with these bikes. A $10.00 donation, matched by them will buy 2 helmets. Donate $20.00 and we provide 4 helmets. Drop your check payable to: The Perfect 10 Charity and drop it in the donation box at the pro shop.
